Even more critically, the string freeze deadline is the same day. I'm not willing to commit to that, no matter how hard Martin and Jesse work. I just don't think there's enough time. I suppose beta is possible given it being a month later, but then people are just going to complain about major things being done after the feature freeze.>on rescue mode: we would like to see a roughly functional equivalent >replacement for rescue mode present in f18, with considerable >flexibility as to the exact form.I don't think rescue mode is too difficult to do. We've just not worked on it, barely talked about it, and not put anyone on the task. It's not alpha criteria so I haven't been especially worried about it.>If anaconda team can commit to a rescue mode replacement for f18 final >at least, that'd be great. thanks.

Given the lack of text/rescue mode and other feature is it not best to delay the "newUI" anaconda til F19 and fallback on using F17's anaconda instead of presenting our user base with half finished product at best?
